Going to the printer today.  Hoping (fingers crossed everybody!) to get them back in time for IPMS/US in Phoenix.  Fourteen different airplanes, including some nose art that's never been done before!  We even found FG-1s (equivalent to the F4U-1A) in Gloss Sea Blue - with nose art!  To keep the cost to a screaming minimum we're not including national insignias with this sheet.  I'll post a link to the instruction sheet as soon as I get it finalized...

Those were my first choice for my 1D, but i went with my second choice of VMF-512, since nothing was available.

How soon before these are available?
